Being a tenant in an integrated township, he had felt thankful during the pandemic. Amidst the endless lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, he felt happy seeing people around. While the world outside had changed, there was at least a sense of normalcy when he was in the township. As people shared each other’s pain, the community grew stronger.
But as he stepped into the world outside, he could hear a voice echoing in his head warning him of the dangers that lay ahead. He was unsure on what all had changed.
“Crucial to finding the way is this: there is no beginning or end.” He knew that he couldn’t rush into the pre-pandemic life in a matter of days or weeks. The health measures need to be followed as the health threat was still elevated.
It would be a slow return to business as usual.
